I'm thinking of buying a new set...and have looked at the LG OLED sets.

Anyone with any experience with them?

Not sure what that apostrophe is doing in "tv's." It's just a plural. Funny.

@Brandon9000,
It’s a Mullard refraction, first coined by 16th century wit and playwright Arthur Mullard who was one of Shakespeare’s contemporaries.

In short the apostrophe refracts back to opinion, meaning if anyone has an opinion of the new oled tv, the tv has an opinion about them.

Scary huh?

Wow, I love that. And I'll go with it.

Actually, I originally wrote the title, "Anyone have an opinion on the new oled tvs?

The thought that came to mind when looking at it was, "What the hell is a tvs?"

So I stuck an apostrophe in there...it looked better...and I went with it.

OLED is an improved picture...with each pixel functioning independently as to on/off.

@Frank Apisa,
thanks. I see that everything has a "hot " period that, with enough creative marketing , can be sold for high premiums. Then as they become more and more of a "commodity", their sales are only based on price comptition.
We are the suckers to really skanky marketing.

@Frank Apisa,
Over the last 11 years I’ve had two LG TVs and Ive loved them. The current one is OLED technology and it’s fantastic, visually as well as problem-free daily use.
Visually, the dynamic range (bright white to deep shadows) is the top. There is no spotlighting (overemphasis of the bright areas) and the shadow are detailed where appropriate and inky back where appropriate.

Furthermore , on my 3.5-yr-old model you can easily use the menu to set the listening or viewing mode to enhance sports, movie, gaming .

Before I retired I was a techie professionally as well as an audiophile so this TV ticks off all the boxes. Lastly, it interfaces well with my Marantz home theater system.

PS. I’d also would recommend Sony, as well as Samsung versions of the similar tech.

Thank, Ragman. I currently have a LG (not OLED) which I love...but it is a 47"...and I really want to go to 55". (Much, much better for football and golf.) Obviously spending too much time watching TV during coronavirus days!

I definitely am leaning towards LG...with Samsung a lagging second.

Thanks for the comments.

@Frank Apisa,
No problem, Frank. When I upgraded I went to a 55 inch OLED display. Their OLED technology is superior to most and is a bit cheaper than Sony but do compare them side-by-side. Sony in the upper models is a tad better but the value may not be there, IMHO.

You may or may not see a qualitative difference in the comparable display of Samsung. Let your eyes be the judge with same source. Go view them where they have both being sold and displayed.

I sit about 8 to 10 feet from it which is an appropriate distance. It’s perfect for football even my significant other, marvelous Maxine, is still pleased with the purchase.

For whatever it’s worth, I placed it on a sturdy flexible adjustable bracket that allows me to tilt and pivot.

I’m not overly fond of Best Buy as the store to fulfill the order. They seem to either mess up delivery and have quite variable expertise no matter which area you consult them on. I used them mainly for price. I installed it myself as I’m fairly handy.

However, The home theater part of the install can be a bit daunting depending on audio and device setup so if that’s what floats your boat, hire a really good tech consultant.

Be forewarned it does not serve beer or pop popcorn but what are you gonna do? That’s what my dog is here for.

Dipping a toe into this testosterone laden subject.

I just looked up the prices of these OLED TVs on Best Buy.

I would imagine Nancy's response would be the same as mine.

"you want to spend THAT much?! On a TV?!

Jesus wept.

You really need/want to spend about a thousand dollars more for....I don't even know what.

Just sayin'

@chai2,
I'll allow my significant other's comment to me when were I Best Buy store when we were shopping for the whole theater system. "You've got to see this!! Come over to the TV display section." she was the one who said it was night and day.

I'm not close to being objective so feel free to dismiss my blathering as nonsense...but....! This is not so much of a budget issue as it seems. You can 'get away with a modest $500-$700 for a larger 50 in + monitor. Or go to $1200-1500 and bite the bullet.After all the SBowl is coming and so are the blockbuster movies we won't see in cinema houses for quite awhile. what better way to toss your $$$ away than to see it on your own castle.

If it's not 100 inches you're not getting it up.

@chai2,
I paid $3500 for a very-high-end 65 inch plasma some years back.

You get what you pay for. I'm still very satisfied with my purchase. The 3D is exquisite.

Do the top quality lines go up to 100 inches?

Bigger is better of course. But only if quality is maintained.
